A prepaid card is a payment card where funds are connected directly to a card without being linked to a bank account. Prepaid cards are available to everyone, regardless of credit rating, income, or whether someone holds a bank account. These cards are a substitute to traditional bank accounts, and are a new way of managing money. These cards are widely used in retailer stores, e-commerce, and others.
